Curious, eh? Are you a mockingbird? What does a mockingbird do anyway? I'll tell you what they do...

They only play covers! They can't play their own songs! laugh.gif

They can only play songs like "Creeping Worms" or "Master of Partridges" by Mealtallica, "Hit by a Train" by Why wuz I born?, "You Shot Me All Night Long" by Aching Chickadee, "Sweet Song of Mine" by Suns N Roses, "The Pooper" by Flyin' Maiden, "Highway to Heaven" by Lead Zeppelin, "We Will Mock You" by Feed, "Worm! Worm! Worm!" by Birds, and this list could go on!!

Once and a while, mockingbirds should make up a few songs themselves. Are you a mockingbird? I have to say that I am. I mainly cover songs, and I don't compose much. .... A moment of silence for the mockingbirds..............

I like playing covers, although I do more composing atm, although I have a list of 20 covers to learn, so I guess I'll disrupt the balance biggrin.gif

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.

I only cover songs by re-orchestrating them smile.gif otherwise, composition and self expression are my goals as a musician!
